ASUS P7P55 LX LGA 1156 - Thoughts?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What are your thoughts on the following MOBO? I am looking at purchasing this but would like to know if I should upgrade or stick with this one. The parts I have selected are already compatible with this board so I'd prefer everything to be the same if there is a decent upgrade.

I would prefer to stick with an ASUS board.

Are you planning on going with SLI or Crossfire?? Because the LX is the only version of that board that doesnt have the PLX chip. The PLX chip allows you to use your sata 6gbs/usb 3 without tapping into your PCIe bandwidth.

Other than that, what are you going to use this computer for??
